Had one of the three choices off the Prix Fix menu. Had Spinach Salad and Pan Seared Trout. All was excellent and price of $35.00 did include one glass of wine. Only three choices of wine as well. Service was excellent, and bread was very good

We ate here mainly because we were staying at the Library Hotel. We had the prix fix menu and enjoyed our meals. My chicken and spinach salad were delicious. A glass of wine also comes with the meal.

Good perhaps for a pre-dinner snack but not for an evening out dining. Food is dull and unimaginative. The Library Hotel next door does not benefit from this restaurant.

For early dinner this offers good ambience and the prix fixee menu is good value (starter, entree/main and a glass of wine). The macaroni au gratin, crab cakes and trout could not be faulted although the steak was medium rare not rare as requested. The wines, were both relatively good ( an Alsatian Pinot Blanc from the fixed menu and... More

I would probably give this restaurant 3.5 stars. Lunch was good, but honestly, nothing to write home about it. Even for Manhattan, it was on the pricey side.

Stopped in for lunch while on a quick trip to Manhattan. I had the scallops with sautéed spinach. Wish I had ordered the lamb sandwich, which my friend had. It was amazing! The cocktails are expensive, but overall a great experience.

We were staying next door at the Library hotel and Madison & Vine was great for a drink on returning from sightseeing and before returning to our room. We also had lunch there twice which was excellent
